HYPNOTISM AND CP-u:E.
Remarkable Experiments Made
by a French Scientist.
&n Important Problem in Medical Juris
prudence.-Tests Applied to a French
Lady and a Soldier-Result of
According to the London St. James' GazeteS
X. Jules Liegeois, Professor of the Faculty
of Law at Nancy. has lately made some re
markable experiments connected with
hypnotism. It is already well known that a
subject who has been thrown into a hypnot
ic trance will, upon awakening, immediate
ly execute any "suggestion." however crim
'inal. that has been made during sleep by a
person who possesses the dangerous power
of absolutely directing the will of another.
The object of Mr. Liegeois' experiments
was to ascertain if it would be possible,
when a crime had been committed by a
hypnotic subject, to discover the author of
the criminal suggestion, who in such a case
would obviously be the really guilty party.
This important problem in medical juris
prudence has for some time attracted a
grnat deal of interest in France, and a num
ber of lawyers and medical men were pres
ent during the experiments.
Here is one of the experiments out of
.many: A lady who was well known to be a
hypnotic subject was thrown into an art
ficial sleep, and K. Liegeois then suggested
to her that upon awakening she should
shoot with a revolver a certain Monsieur
O., who was supposed to have insulted
her. She was enjoined to say, if she
.was questioned, that M. Liegeois had held
-no communication with her upon the sub
ject, and that she had not been under the
influence of any one, but had acted entirely
,of her own volition. A revolver loaded
with ablank charge having been placed up
on a table close at hand, the lady was awak
ened. The instant she perceived Monsieur
0., who was in the room, she seized the re
volver and fired at him. She was then
again put to sleep, this time by Dr. Lie
bault, who played the part of medico-legal
.expert and proceededtointerrogate her. The
lady at once admitted the supposed crime,
and, in obedience to the injunction she had
received, stoutly demed all suggestion. So
far it seemed that there was a certain
means of escape for the real criminal who
had suggested the supposed murder; but an
ingenious test was then resorted to which
proved that the suggester was never very
safe after all. K. Liebault made these three
suggestions: "(1) When you see the insti
gator of your crime enter the room you
must go to sleep for the space of two min
utes; (2) when you awaken you must look
fixedly at him and not take your eyes from
his until I say 'That will do;' (3) you must
then stand in front of him and endeavor, by
extending your skirts, to conceal him from
view." The lady was awakened, and in a
short time M. Liegeois, who had suggested
the shooting, . came into the room, in
which about a dozen persons were assem
-bled. Almost at once she went to sleep.
In about two minutes she awoke, fixed her
gaze steadfastly upon 3L Liegeois, and fol
lowed him, step by step, round the room.
M. Liegeois went into another apartmeut,
the lady following him. He sat down, and
:she at once extended her dress in front of
him, as though to conceal him. When she
regained her normal condition, she remeni
bored nothing of what had happened
K. Liegeois' experiments do not stand
alone. Prof. Bernheim applied almost iden
-tical tests to a soldier who had returned
from Tonquin. He compelled him, by sug
gestion, to steal a five-franc piece, and en
joined him not to admit that he had been
;hypnotized. When interrogated as to why
he had committed the theft, he replied that
he did it "because the idea occurred to him,"
and took an oath that the act had not been
suggested to him. Thereupon the soldier
was again operated upon, and while he wvas
inmthe hypnotic sleep he was told: " When
you see the person who suggested to you to
~steal, you must go up to him and say, 'I am
very glad to see you. Please sing me the
*Marseillaise.'" The subject obeyed
these injunctions to the letter. He
was then again put to sleep and
ask'ed to reveal the name of the in
stigator of the theft; but he once more
denied that there had been any sugges
tion. Nevertheless Prof. Bernheim said to
hbim: "When you see the instigatoreof the
robbery, you must say: 'I remember you
perfectly;it was you who told me tosteaL'"
Themoment he was awakened he went up
to the professor and repeated the suggested
phrase. It would thus seem to be toler
ably clear -that although a hypnotized per
son willnot reveal in a direct way the name
of a person under whose infiuence he has
been, he will reveal it in an indirect way.
He will do nothing that he has been cate
gonially forbidden to do; and that is all.
This being so, it is clear tliat in certain cir
sumstances the author of a criminal sug
gestion would assuredly be discovered. But
these experiments taire no account of a very
.mportsat contingency-the possible, and
indeed probable, absence from the scene of
thesuggester of a crune. The whole sub
ject of hypnotism is very curious and im
portant from the point of view of medical
jurisprudenee;- since it is obvious that un
der cover of "suggestions" the most atro
ciouis crimes could be committed. Happily
Shore is good reason to believe that the
numbeof persons eapable of being hypao
Sized is comparatively small; and it is
doubtful whether, after all, hypnotic sug
gestion would be of much use to the boldest
and zgost adroit villain-except, of course,
in 3 "shullngshocker."

wide, full forehead in the center.

Itself by wide nostrils, short neck, and eyes
set directly in front.
Language: This faculty is exhibited in

when very large, is indicated by a long,
broad chin. Firmness is synonymous wish
wilfulness, perseverance and stability.
-Perception of Character: This is indicated
by a long, high nose at the lower end or tip.
This faculty is very useful, if not indispen
sable, to a judge in the exercise of the funic

Powers of Observation: The situation of
this faculty is in the face just above the tip
of the nose,filling out the forehead to a level
with the parts on each side of the nose. It

Conscientiousness: This is shown in the
face by a square jaw, a bony chin, prom

of the features of the entire face. To be
censcientious means that one has a sense of
justdce, honesty of purpose, rectitude of
shamate- and moral courage.

My Poor Back!
That's the common exclamation of those suffering with rheumatism or kidney troubles. In
either disease Paine's Celery Compound will surely effect a cure, and there will no longer be
any cause to complain of " poor backs." Hundreds of testimonials like the follow
ing confirm our claims for that grand old remedy, Paines's Celery Compound:
" Two weeks ago I could not sleep more than an hour at a time any night,
was constipated and kidr.eys did not act, ., and had a good deal of pain in the
back. Since I took Paine's Celery Compound the pain has left my back,
and I can sleep like a child." Zenas Sanders, West Windsor, Vermont.
"Having been troubled with rheumatism for five years, I was almost unable
to get around, and was very often con fined to my bed for weeks at a time. I
have used nearly all medicines imaginable, besides outside advices, but to no advan
tage. Having seen Paine's Celery Com r pound advertised, I gave it a trial. I have
used only one bottle and am perfectly cured. I can now jump around and feel
lively as a boy." Frank Caroli, Eureka, Nevada. Price, $r.oo. Six for $5.oo.
